Watercolor artist

Available for commissions – people, pet, and house portraits.

Visual art is my love. Watercolor is my passion. The way the water and pigment act and react on paper intrigues me. I find it is always an adventure and sometimes a surprise how the effects are achieved by layering different colors.

I try to paint every day, even if it is for just an hour. Once I start on a project, it is difficult for me to walk away from my easel and palette. It seems that my brushes are seldom dry.
As you view my work, I hope you see that art is my oxygen. Please enjoy.
